another summer for the city ,

and on the thirty- three bus downtown,

you said “I’m getting higher than you “

so I took the subway to your suburb

saw your mother in an all white gown,

she said “I’m getting high how bout you?”

so long sleep,

its been real deep, but

with all these sheep on my cloud,

I keep on losing count.

see me riding all around town?

an angry boy is a hungry boy.

island ridin’,

no one’s around.

a hungry boy is an angry boy

bomb threat on the train,

and there's a man on a ledge in Bed Stuy,

who said, “ I’m getting higher than you!”

nowadays I’m feeling just like him,

ready to blow up or ready to die

so I’m getting high, how bout you?

Jesus Christ, I was stoned last night,

they had me up on a cross,

I woke up feeling lost.

see me riding ?

and there's no one around in my sight

for miles and miles

just an empty bottle of booze

with no text inside

to tell the folks I'm

island ridin'

stories high
